South Carolina Bill to Increase Registration Fees Dies as Legislature Adjourns

 

Legislation (S.B. 616) to increase biennial registration fees for motor vehicles died when the legislature adjourned for 2014.  The bill would have increased the registration fees for private passenger vehicles, excluding trucks, from $24 to $36 for persons under age 65.  For persons 65 years old and older, the fees for private passenger vehicles, excluding trucks, would have risen from $20 to $32.  In addition, the measure would have increased the registration fees for property-carrying vehicles 6,000 pounds or less from $30 to $42 for persons 65 years old and older.  For all other property carrying vehicles, the fees would have risen incrementally depending on the vehicle weight.  For example, fees for trucks weighing between 4,001 and 5,000 pounds would have increased from $40 to $53.

Thanks to all who participated in opposing this bill.
